    ALFA awus036a card monitort mode

    Hi, I have a problem with the ALFA awus036a card. The card has drivers installed in kali linux rtl8812au. I mean the monitor mode, which should look like wlan0mon. The fact card goes into monitor mode after entering the iwconfig command, you can see that the monitor mode is on, but I cannot scan the network by such an error:

    Code:
    ┌──(root💀kali)-[~]
    └─# airodump-ng wlan1mon 
    Interface wlan1mon: 
    ioctl(SIOCGIFINDEX) failed: No such device
    Failed initializing wireless card(s): wlan1mon
    
    
    
    
    ┌──(root💀kali)-[~]
    └─# iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.

    did you do:
    airmon-ng check kill
    airmon-ng start wlan0

    before you tried to do airodump? If you didn't, you havent created the virtual monitoring interface hence why airodump is unable to initialize.

    If you do iwconfig and airmon-ng you should see the following output:
    gspector@Kali-VM:~$ sudo airmon-ng
    [sudo] password for gspector:


    PHY Interface Driver Chipset


    phy1 wlan0mon mt76x2u MediaTek Inc. MT7612U 802.11a/b/g/n/ac


    gspector@Kali-VM:~$ iwconfig
    lo no wireless extensions.


    eth0 no wireless extensions.


    wlan0mon IEEE 802.11 Mode:Monitor Frequency:5.22 GHz Tx-Power=20 dBm
    Retry short limit:7 RTS thrff Fragment thrff
    Power Managementn

    it looks to me like you havent executed the commands up top.
